Hackers Strike Yet Again, This One Is Going to Hurt Us
This is getting ridiculous now. If you’re a major company, you seriously need to beef up your cyber security because hackers are easily holding companies hostage lately.
But speaking of beef…this time, the company is JBS which is one of the largest meat processors in the world.
This is the third attack in less than two months and this one might hurt depending on what happens.
JBS, one of the world’s largest international meat processors, was hacked Sunday, the company said in an email, forcing the company to take systems offline and stop work in North America and Australia.
The company maintains 11 beef processing facilities in Australia and 26 chicken processing plants in the U.S.
At least six JBS locations in the U.S. posted on their respective Facebook pages for workers to not come in Tuesday, an NBC review of their posts found.
One such post, from JBS’s beef processing plant in Grand Island, Nebraska, wrote: “Team member: This weekend our company was the target of a cyberattack that has impacted our IT systems. As a result, we will not operate tomorrow. ONLY MAINTENANCE AND SHIPPING ARE SCHEDULED TO WORK.”
You know what really makes all of this interesting? The industries that seem to be getting attacked are those that the Biden administration has been attacking, that is to say the meat and oil industries.
Is this just a nice convenience for them? Who knows? But if you ask me, when it comes to government involvement in something, there are no coincidences. There are only well-coordinated manuevers.
But in all reality, I think if the government is going to do something worthy of commendation in all of this, they need to work with companies to dramatically increase security for not just large businesses, but in other areas as well, including the government themselves because we’ve seen them hacked more than once now as well.
I think some sort of blockchain security measures need to be utilized.
